Sometimes you need to pare down your diaper bag to nothing but the basics. When some friends in from out-of-town recently suggested a family brunch at a tony new restaurant, I jumped at the idea. Halfway through the meal, my daughter needed a diaper change so we headed to the ladies' room. After bopping a few too many people with my bag on our way into the restroom, I spent another five minutes fishing for the necessities. My diaper bag can hold a week's worth of snacks, toys and goodies, but it's not perfect for every occasion.
